Morpheus8 RF Microneedling in Playa Vista, CA
The Morpheus 8 procedure is minimally invasive and offers many skin rejuvenation benefits for people of all ages. It works by combining the power of microneedling and RF – radiofrequency – energy. Together, these offer amazing and visible results faster than when conducted on their own.
Similar to traditional microneedling, the Morpheus 8 procedure works by making very small punctures in the uppermost layers of the skin. Once the punctures are made, RF energy is sent into the skin, enabling tissue remodeling. Because the epidermis and dermis are both treated in this procedure, it works by enabling your body’s healing response. This helps to stimulate the new production of elastin and collagen in three different layers of skin.

Benefits of Morpheus 8
The Morpheus 8 procedure is an innovative and effective treatment that uses RF energy and microneedling to help enhance the benefits and results.
Some of the top benefits of this skin treatment include that it is a minimally invasive procedure, it is a safe procedure for all types of skin and tones, including darker skin types, safe for use on many different parts of the body, and works to diminish many signs of aging that other treatments may not be effective against.
Who Is a Candidate for Morpheus 8 Treatment?
Did you know that almost anyone will qualify for the Morpheus 8 treatment? Not only that, but if you are dealing with mild sagging problems on different areas of your body, this treatment will likely be effective.
If your goal is to reduce things like wrinkles or fine lines, scarring from pregnancy, or acne scars, then Morpheus 8 treatment is a smart option for you. Unlike other laser treatments, those who will benefit from this procedure aren’t just individuals with a lighter skin tone.
If you have more serious wrinkles, lines, and sagging issues, then you can use this treatment as a starting point. You may be advised that adding on a few treatments will be beneficial. One that we often combine with Morpheus 8 is BOTOX, which will help you enjoy even more benefits and anti-aging results.
What to Expect During the Morpheus 8 Treatment Process?
As you can see, there are more than a few benefits offered by the Morpheus 8 treatment. As a result, you may be ready to make your appointment. However, knowing what the procedure is like before moving forward will help ensure you are prepared.
When you first arrive at our office, we will apply a numbing cream, which will help reduce potential discomfort during the procedure. We aim to ensure you have a positive experience throughout the treatment process.
After the cream works, we will use the handheld Morpheus 8 device to begin treating the selected area. As it is moved across your skin, the tiny needles will begin to puncture the top layer of your skin, and then the RF heat will follow this. Every treatment is customized to the unique needs of the patient being treated. We can also adjust the RF energy to reach the proper depths and provide the most benefits possible.
You can expect the procedure to take about an hour, which is just an estimate and varies based on the area you are having treated. The whole treatment time, which includes applying the numbing cream and giving it time to work, can take two to three hours. While we apply the treatment, you may feel a bit of discomfort, but it will be minimal.
Once complete, you will likely notice swelling and redness in the treatment area. You may also have slight bruising for a few days after the treatment. We can provide you with more specific after-care instructions to ensure that you get the best possible results from the treatment.
Is the Morpheus 8 Treatment Painful?
It is natural to experience discomfort when the Morpheus 8 device glides over your skin. However, our goal is to minimize your discomfort, which can be done by numbing cream. We will apply this cream to the part of the body to be treated and then give it time to “kick in.” If you are concerned that this will not be enough, you can discuss other pain relief options with your technician before or on the day of your appointment.
What to Expect After the Morpheus 8 Treatment?
Unlike many other procedures, with Morpheus 8, there is no extended recovery period. Usually, you will be able to return to work right after the treatment is done. While this is true, you may want to wait to attend a social event or special occasion until you fully heal, which can take a few days up to a week. This is because possible side effects, such as redness, bruising, and swelling, may occur.
Are There Any Side Effects to the Morpheus 8 Treatment?
The side effects of the Morpheus 8 treatment are usually minimal. You may see some swelling, scabbing, redness, or itching; however, these issues will fade within a few days of the treatment. If you are worried about the possible side effects, contact our Marina Del Ray office and speak to our experienced technicians. If you are concerned about additional side effects, getting in touch is a good idea. We will ensure that you have all your questions answered to minimize concerns and worries about the situation.
